Fibroblast Plasma Pen

12 Ashfield Road, Liverpool, L170BZ

Plasma Pen is the world’s most advanced, non-invasive, skin lifting, skin tightening, and rejuvenation device used to treat wrinkles, and sagging, dull skin. The Plasma Pen is an CE approved device used to perform fibroblast therapy; a technique used to stimulate production of collagen in the skin, and is used only by our clinically trained aestheticians.

Fibroblasting produces excellent results for any area of the body, particularly the face and neck regions. It is important for anyone considering fibro blasting treatment to carefully review the Plasma Pen contraindications, Plasma Pen Pre and Post Care Instructions, risks, and skin types that can be safely treated.

Accordion lines – the lines that form outside of the mouth when you smile

Acne scars – improvement in the appearance of post-acne marks and scars

Crow’s feet around eyes

Forehead lines

Jowl / jawline tightening

Marionette lines – The creases or folds that run vertically from the corners of the mouth down to the chin

Nasal labial folds / smile lines – The folds that run from the sides of your nose down to the edge of your mouth

Drooping Skin / Loose Skin

Drooping Skin on neck, above knees and elbows

Necklines, turkey neck

Smoker’s lines – those vertical wrinkles also known as lipstick lines around the mouth

Stretchmarks

Upper and lower eyelids – Bags and hoods

This handheld device emits a small electrical arc from the tip of the pen without actually touching the skin. This plasma arc vaporises the skin giving an immediate tightening affect to the surrounding skin. These small points form scabs that drop off over the following week post treatment revealing a smoother and tighter skin. It is suitable for lines and wrinkles, loose skin, scars, skin tags, warts, moles and pigmentation. Skin tags will be treated instantly, whilst warts and pigmentation spots form crusts that will fall off within a few days.

Although completely non-invasive, you still need to expect a few days of down time after the treatment as the skin will need to heal and rejuvenate.

The process can be uncomfortable, but a local anaesthetic cream is applied 30 – 40 mins before commencing the procedure. You can expect a small degree of swelling when treating the eye area, which will go down within 3 or 4 days. Tiny, circular scabs form at each treatment point that take about 3 days to start falling away but will take about a week to completely clear. We will give you aftercare to minimise infection risk. Once the skin has healed you will be left with a more youthful, radiant skin.

The great thing about this treatment is that usually a single treatment is enough to achieve the results you want., However, if you do want a stronger result then we can repeat the procedure after 3 months. The results from this treatment are permanent. Because of its permanency you will only need to repeat it if required further down the line as we genetically age.

                             Contraindications  Fibroblast Plasma Pen

Alopecia:

This is an autoimmune disease resulting in hair loss. Sufferers may be more sensitive to treatment but there should be no problems treating alopecia sufferers with Plasma Pen.

Anaemia:

Anaemia is a condition characterized by a deficiency of the haemoglobin content of red corpuscles. These clients will bleed more profusely and will take longer to heal.

Anaesthetics:

Usually any reaction to the topical cream would be due to the base or preparation that the anaesthetic is found in, such as the cream or the gel. Our technician would patch test with topical anaesthetic cream during consultation. If a reaction is experienced, then we could look at alternative preparations.

Asthma:

Asthma is characterized by inflammation of the air passages resulting in the temporary narrowing of the airways and making it difficult to breathe. Asthma often requires the use of an inhaler to ease breathing. Regular use of an inhaler will cause thinning of the skin and increased vascularity. If you have asthma, you may bleed more easily and sometimes bruise. Your skin may be more sensitive and take longer to heal.

Birth Marks and Port Wine Stains

These cannot and must not ever be treated with Plasma Pen.

Blepharoplasty

Excess fat and skin are surgically removed from the upper and lower eyelid. If a patient has had blepharoplasty (and our technique is often referred to as non-surgical blepharoplasty), you must wait for 3 months post-blepharoplasty (or longer if there is still pronounced redness in the area) before a Plasma Pen treatment.

BOTOX

It is recommended to wait at least 21 days after BOTOX injections. It is preferable to have your Plasma Pen treatment performed prior to BOTOX being administered or when the BOTOX is just about due for a top up.

Breastfeeding

The Plasma Pen treatment cannot be performed on breastfeeding mothers.

Brow, Forehead, or Facelift

Please allow three (3) months after your brow, forehead, or facelift to determine your suitability for Plasma Pen treatment.

Bruising or Bleeding Easily

Bruising or bleeding easily may indicate an underlying health problem, and if you are prone to bruise or bleed easily, you may take longer to heal from your Plasma Pen treatment.

Cancer

If you are undergoing radiotherapy or chemotherapy, then we must allow leave 5 weeks either side of treatment to be treated with Plasma Pen. If you are undergoing cancer treatment, you should check with your oncologist to find out when your blood count is most suitable to receive treatment. If the cancer is terminal, we may proceed with a doctor’s written consent.

Cataracts

Our technicians may perform the Plasma Pen treatment with a doctor’s written consent (if treating the eye area).

Contact Lenses

Contact lenses must be removed before any treatment close to the eye and must not be used for up to 72 hours post-procedure. We cannot begin to stress the importance of ensuring contact lenses are removed pre-treatment.

Diabetes

Diabetics have a tendency to both bleed and bruise easily, so you may find it more uncomfortable and the healing process may be lengthier. Some clients may need to wait longer between treatments.

Dry Eye

During a treatment, we may use more eye lubricant and saline solution throughout the treatment to keep you comfortable.

Epilepsy

If it has been two years since your last seizure, we may proceed with the Plasma Pen treatment. Plasma Pen treatment may trigger an epileptic event, and Health and Serenity will request that you complete a consent form as well as have someone bring with you at your appointment.

Eye Laser Surgery (LASIK)

If you have recently undergone any laser surgery for the eye, such as LASIK, it is recommended to wait 8-12 weeks post surgery.

Hay Fever / Allergies

If your eyes are red, watering, puffy or the skin is inflamed and red, your technician will recommend delaying the Plasma Pen procedure until symptoms have passed.

Haemophilia

Haemophilia is contraindicated for Plasma Pen treatment, and not safe for haemophiliac patients.

Herpes

Herpes Simplex is a viral infection commonly referred to as a cold sore or fever blister – usually around the mouth. If you have ever had a cold sore, you are more likely to have an outbreak after Plasma Pen treatment in that area. Health and Serenity suggests that you ask your physician for an antiviral treatment, at least 5 days before treatment and 5 days after treatment.

HIV / AIDS / Hepatitis

Plasma Pen is not safe for individuals with HIV / AIDS / Hepatitis or other immune disorders.

Hyperpigmentation

This is an over-production of melanin which has permanently damaged the surface of the skin. It is more commonly seen in Afro-Caribbean, Mediterranean, Asian and Latin skin types. It presents as darker patches of skin. Unfortunately, Plasma Pen is not appropriate for anyone with hyperpigmentation or having skin types 3-5 on the Fitzpatrick scale.

Injections / Fillers

It is recommended to wait at least 21 days after the filler has been administered before doing a Plasma Pen treatment. It is also common for lips with large amounts of filler or fat in them to have slower or compromised healing. In some cases, the lips can become infected more easily during the healing process after working close to the lip.

Kidney or Liver Disease

Health and Serenity requests written consent from a doctor if you have kidney or liver disease.

Lupus

Due to the inflammation and swelling associated with lupus, the Plasma Pen treatment cannot be safely performed.

Mitral Valve Prolapse

If a you require antibiotics when you visit your dentist, then you will need to do the same prior to any Plasma Pen treatment.

Pregnancy

Like any cosmetic procedure, the Plasma Pen treatment comes with the risk of complications, including infection. These infections can cause risk to foetal health and even cause the loss of the baby. For these reasons, Health and Serenity technicians will not perform Plasma Pen treatments on women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Retinal Detachment

Retinal Detachment is where the retina peels away from its underlying layer of support tissue. Initial detachment may be localized but without rapid surgical treatment the entire retina may detach, leading to vision loss and blindness. We ask that if you have experienced retinal conditions, that you obtain a written consent form from your ophthalmic surgeon prior to commencing Plasma Pen treatment in the eye area.

Skin Disorders (e.g. psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis)

All skin disorders can make the skin exceedingly dry and treatment more uncomfortable because the skin is usually thinner and more sensitive. It is not recommended to treat any areas with Plasma Pen that are affected by any of these skin disorders.

Scars (Hypertrophic, Keloid)

This type of scar is raised instead of being flat and does not grow, and remain within the perimeter of the original wound and flatten over time. When new, they are often purple/pink becoming more pink/white as they mature. Unfortunately, Plasma Pen is not an appropriate treatment for hypertrophic scars.

Shingles

Please wait 6 months after a shingles outbreak before undergoing a Plasma Pen procedure.

Sties or Conjunctivitis

If you suffer from sties or conjunctivitis, please wait at least 6 weeks following treatment prior to undergoing your Plasma Pen procedure. It is possible that the Plasma Pen treatment may cause the condition to recur if having the eye area treated. In some cases we may request written consent from your physician prior to commencing Plasma Pen treatment.

Thyroid

If you suffer from underactive thyroid, you may find that your healing time is slightly longer than typical.

Trichotillomania

If you are prone to picking, the Plasma Pen treatment may not be appropriate due to the increased risk of infection and hyperpigmentation associated with additional trauma to the skin caused by trichotillomania.

Vitiligo

Unfortunately, clients with vitiligo are not good candidates for Plasma Pen due to the risk associated with outbreaks in other areas of the body or face

              FIBROBLAST PLASMA PEN PRE AND POST CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Before Your Treatment

Avoid any kind of tanning (Spray tanning, tanning injections, sun tanning and tanning beds) for 2 to 4 weeks before your treatment. Ideally, you should try to use SPF5O to prep your skin for 2 to 4 weeks before your treatment, especially if you are naturally darker skinned.

Avoid any other type of procedures on the same area which you intend to have treated with Plasma Pen, such as laser therapy, chemical peels, Botox, fillers, as this may prevent your treatment being performed by your technician at the time you want it.

No facial acids (Retin A, salicylic, glycolic) 14 days before or 21 days after Plasma Pen

No Botox or fillers 21 days before or after Plasma Pen

No Micro needling/PRP 21 days before or after Plasma Pen

No laser or peels (depending on intensity of peel) for 90 days before or after Plasma Pen

Surgical procedures like face lifts you must wait at least 9 months postop/before Plasma Pen.

Immediately Following Treatment

You may experience a “stinging” sensation in the treated area(s) immediately after treatment. This is normal and it generally only lasts for about an hour.

If the treated area is swollen, you may apply ice packs covered with a clean cloth. Do NOT apply ice directly onto the skin, as this can cause damage to the tissue. Avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications like aspirin, ibuprofen or steroids if possible.

If you are receiving a Plasma Pen treatment anywhere on your face or neck, we recommend you sleep on your back with your head elevated to reduce swelling.

 DO NOT cleanse the treated area until the following day

Do NOT exercise 48 hours after treatment or expose yourself to any heat, steam or sweat because this can intensify the inflammation that’s already present.

Your technician will provide you with after care products and instructions. You must follow the provided aftercare protocol to expedite the healing process and avoid complications.

The area that has been treated must NOT be covered with occlusive dressing or any type of sunblock, make-up, mascara, creams or any other products until the area has fully healed. Many ingredients in skin care products and cosmetics can irritate skin and cause allergic reactions. Ultimately this will slow you’re your healing process and possibly impede desired results

It is highly unlikely you will ever get an infection from a Plasma Pen treatment, as the wound we cause is not open. However, the first 12 hours post-treatment is vital in protecting you from any potential infection, so please avoid any activities where you could expose your-self to contaminants. Keeping hands off of anything that comes in contact with the treatment area

You may return to work the following day. However, you will not look your absolute best during the initial healing process (approximately 7 days)

Expect redness, swelling and inflammation for the first 1 to 5 days post-treatment. This is normal but will usually be of a very minor nature.

Following Days After Your Treatment

It is normal for the area that has been treated to be red/pink, swollen and feel tight and dry. Occasional weeping is normal and will settle

Tiny crusts will quickly form on the treated area. These may be visible for up to about a week.

Do NOT pick crusts off as this will de-lay the healing process and could cause hyperpigmentation and scarring

The area(s) treated may be cleansed daily with room temperature water and your fingers. Avoid using washcloths or any other washing devices. You are only removing excess oil and do not need to thoroughly cleanse the treated skin. Do NOT be tempted to rub, brush or exfoliate the area in any way to aid in the removal of the crusts. Pat dry with a clean tissue

Do NOT stand with your face under a hot shower for the first 3-4 days. This could increase swelling. Try to avoid shower gels or hair products running on to your face as this could cause irritation and inflammation. Rinse thoroughly with tepid water if products do come into contact with the area(s) treated and gently pat dry

Avoid swimming or chlorinated water as it can increase irritation.

Keep scabs/crusts moist by applying provided aftercare three times a day – but only in small amounts, do not soak the area.

Men should avoid shaving the treated area until it is fully healed (around 7 days).

If you have had treatment around your eyes, you should avoid wearing contact lenses for 72 hours after your treatment.

Once the scabs have fallen off (approximately 7 days), your skin may be a little pink. You may begin to apply your normal foundation/make-up/sunblock but avoid using skincare products containing glycolic/salicylic/retinoic/AHA/scrubs/Clarisonic or any other active exfoliating ingredients/devices for at least 21 days, as this will cause irritation. ABSOLUTELY NO MAKEUP UNTIL SCABS HAVE FALLEN OFF.

Avoid sun exposure. Once the scabs have fallen off, you must wear a physical sunblock (zinc & titanium) and a hat while your skin is in the healing stages (pink in colour) and you should continue to do so for at least the next 12 weeks to avoid hyperpigmentation.

Do NOT sunbath/sun tanning beds for 10–12-week post procedure.

Do NOT have any other facial treatments in the same treatment area while your skin is healing (12 weeks).

Do NOT wax treatment area for at least 21 days, if not longer. If you are receiving Plasma Pen treatment anywhere around the eyes, I would wait the full 12 weeks. It will be ok to tweeze or thread any unwanted hairs after scabs have fallen off the area.

Other Important Aftercare Advice & Top Tips

Avoid smoking and alcohol.

Eat a whole food diet and avoid excess sugar to maximize results.

On top of the immediate rejuvenation, lifting and tightening effects, you will likely experience from Plasma Pen, it takes 8 to 12 weeks for the full effects of your treatment to be seen.

If additional treatments are required, it will be necessary to wait until the skin completely heals (12 weeks).
